AMERICAN VAMPIRE: 1976 #1 kicks off a stunning new BLACK LABEL return for DEATH METAL / BATMAN writer SCOTT SNYDER’S incredible VERTIGO horror series!

America is broken. Trust between the government and the American public has crumbled. Paranoia reigns supreme.

It’s 1976, and this is the concluding chapter of the Eisner Award-winning American Vampire!

Skinner Sweet has exhausted all efforts to regain his lost immortality. With his powers and purpose gone, he is now determined to go out with a bang.

At a seedy motorcycle rally in the desert where he’s closer than ever to his death wish, Pearl Jones and a shocking partner tracks him down for one last, desperate mission: The force known as the Gray Trader and its minions are tunneling through the bowels of the world to unleash hell on Earth—just in time for America’s bicentennial.

With catastrophe looming, it’s up to Skinner and Pearl to reconcile and change the course of history—or die trying.

The series that launched the careers of superstars Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque returns for nine final issues and the closing chapter of the legacy of American Vampire.

Imagine the generational storytelling of something like ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA or The Godfather and Goodfellas crossed with one of the most unique takes on vampires ever told — that’s AMERICAN VAMPIRE, and we love the heck out of it!

You can give it a shot by jumping on fresh with this first issue, or if you want to go back to the very start, we’ve got the graphic novels, starting with volume 1, in stock to catch you up!

AMERICAN RONIN #1 kicks off a killer new series from AWA (YEAR ZERO, DEVIL’S HIGHWAY) this week!!!

We’re loving the output of upstart new indie publisher AWA, and this week, they’ve got a big hit on the way with AMERICAN RONIN!

Their number one weapon: highly-skilled, technologically-enhanced operatives trained since childhood to pledge their allegiance to the corporate flag.

But what happens when one such operative breaks free of his mental chains and decides to bring the whole system down?

Can one “Ronin” make a difference?

MORIARTY THE PATRIOT VOL.1 arrives this week, delivering a killer new manga spin on the Sherlock and Moriarty mythos!

In the late 19th century, Great Britain rules over a quarter of the world. Nobles sit in their fancy homes in comfort and luxury, while the working class slaves away at their jobs.

When young Albert James Moriarty’s upper-class family adopts two lower-class orphans, the cruelty the boys experience at his family’s hands cements Albert’s hatred of the nobility he was born into.

He asks the older of the two boys-who has a genius mind and a killer instinct-to help him rid the world of evil, starting with Albert’s own family!

DCEASED DEAD PLANET #4 delivers another shocking bloodbath of an issue, and we’re loving it!

The dark Elseworlds of DCEASED is one of the coolest concepts to come out of DC Comics in the last few years, letting the man who made the INJUSTICE comics so darn awesome, run wild, and decimate the DCU as we know it against the backdrop of a 28 DAYS LATER-style infection.

In DEAD PLANET, things have been really heating up, and in this weeks issue #4, time is running out for the Justice League to unlock the Anti-Life cure as they face a deadly new threat on Earth—in addition to the billions of the undead!

Their final desperate attempt at finding the cure will take them off-planet for the greatest heist in the history of New Genesis!

Wanna catch up? We’ve got issues 1-3 in stock to get you current with this weeks issue 4!
